Batrachotrematidae is a family of trematodes in the order Plagiorchiida.

Genera

The following genera are described severally, and by Rizvi, et al. (2012):[2]

The following additional genera are described by Cribb (2005),[4] but are not discussed in Rizvi, et al. (2012)[2] or other studies:

Cribb (2005)[4] noted that most species of Batrachotrematidae are poorly described, and many seem to be different from the type-species of the genera to which they belong. A lack of molecular studies prevent adequate classification of the species;[2] Cribb (2005)[4] describes the split between African and Asian species, which parasitise different types of frogs, as possibly warranting a separate distinction at the family level. The lack of clarity regarding the definition of the family, and the lack of molecular and life-cycle studies on the putative species, makes Batrachotrematidae one of the worst-defined digenean families.
